OS X :: Unable To Auto-login To Guest Account / Safari Wants To Use Keychain Login

Jan 6, 2009

I work for a company that has several Macs available for customers' use. These are basically demo-machines that they can play with, and at the end of each day, the machines are wiped and rebooted.

The way we do this is simple: the machines auto-login to the Guest account, which will wipe the account at the end of the day. Well, getting a few new Macs in this week, I simply copied over the entire Guest user account to the new machines to avoid reloading all the demo content, preferences, etc. And truthfully, the machines have been working great.

Except one thing. The computer keeps giving me that annoying message that says "Safari (or Finder, or System Preferences, or anything!) wants to use keychain 'login'". And asks for the login keychain password. Well here's the thing: the Guest accounts don't have passwords!

So I looked up a little bit on this topic, and did things like... Went to "Keychain List" in the Edit menu of Keychain Access, and deleted both the "login" and "system" keychains. No help. I went to Preferences in Keychain Access and said "Reset My Keychain". When doing this, however, it asks for the new password for the login keychain.

The problem with this is that I cannot leave the field blank! The Guest account doesn't have a password, so how am I supposed to not create a password?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Get Automatic Login After Crash And Reinstalling

Jun 22, 2012

My late 2008 MacBook (aluminum) crashed last month. I have fixed many of the items that quit working except: I can no longer automatically log in. When I go to Preferences and then to Users & Groups (Login Options) the "Click the lock to make changes" always goes to page which says "System Preferences quit unexpectedly." On that page it says Exception Type: EXE_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV) and Exception Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS at 0x0000000000000000. Is there a solution that does not require me to wipe the computer and reinstall from scratch?

OS X :: Disable Startup Items For A One-time Login?

Jan 13, 2009

I'm sure many of you know how using bootcamp can cause slow startups when switching OS's because it has no cache to use. For example I'll be in Windows and then need to swap back over to Leopard to get something done, but it takes forever. The worst part is the list of login items... I've tried using scripts to separate them by 10 seconds or so, but nothing really made it faster. I was wondering if it was possible to login but cancel or disable the startup items for that login that one time... Sometimes I just need to login to grab something off the internet or something quick, but it takes me awhile because I have to wait for everything to load.

Do I make any sense? :P

And no, safe startup mode does not count. I don't want to disable the entire system... just the login items.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Auto-Logout Does Not Return To Login Window

Jun 6, 2012

I have a new install of Mac 10.7.4 on a 21" iMac. I have the iMac set to automatically log out after 14 minutes of idle time. On many occasions when the logout is triggerd, the user account will log out, but the screen does not display the login window, it still shows an image of the last state of when the computer was logged in. When I move the mouse, the screen acts as if it's erasing the pixels off the screen, showing bits and pieces of the login screen in the background. If I type a user ID and password, a small area clears around the login fields so I can see the fields and log in. 

This was originally happening when a screen saver was enabled, I have since removed the screen saver. This did not make a difference. 

I have the Preference Pane>Security>Advanced set to log  out at 14 minutes and the Preference Pane>Energy Saver>Display Sleep set to go black at 15 minutes. 

I have tried various different times/settings, but have not been able to fix this. 

Since this configuration is for a Lab setting, I really need for the computer to log out cleanly and go back to the login screen.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Disable Sleep Button At Login Screen?

May 1, 2012

Is there a way to disable or hide the sleep button at the login screen? I am trying to send updates and/or commands from ARD.... But the end users are putting the computers to sleep by pressing the sleep button. This is causing the ARD updates/commands to fail. The computers and severs are all Lion OSX. If I can disable the sleep button at login then I can send the updates/commands. I normally only do the updates/commands when there is no user logged in.So I am not concerned with the case where the user is already logged in and puts the computer to sleep. I have already setup an MCX in WGM for the Energy Saver.

OS X V10.4 :: Disabling Automatic Login?

Jun 3, 2012

I sometimes have other people using my mac and it automatically logs in to my account. I do not have "disable automatic log in" chcked and have read/heard it is a god idea to have it checked. I have a few questions about disabling automatic log in though. SInce I am "admin" on my Mac, does that mean if i disable automatic log in do I need to set up a new password or will my "admin" one be just fine and/or used?If I check the "require password to wake this computer or screen saver" will that password also be my "admin"?

On a Mac Book Air and a Mac Book Pro we have had a sudden problem.  The Air came with Lion installed, the Pro just got upgraded to Lion.  We got a new login banner that must be displayed.  It is about 10 lines long.  We put it in, and on reboot it covers the login boxes for user name and password.  We can't find any way to dismiss the banner and login.  What can we do.

PowerPC :: Set IMac G3 (Blueberry) To Stop Automatic Login At Start Up?

Jun 19, 2008

A couple of nights ago I set my iMac G3 (Blueberry) to stop automatic login at start up and put it to sleep. I did this because I didn't want my kids on the web in the middle of the night while I was sleeping. When morning comes, the computer is off. I try to start it but it won't turn over. When I push the on button, the button flashes on for a split second and I hear the crackle of static as if the computer is starting, but nothing happens after that. I tried plugging and unplugging the computer, but nothing helps.

It's like a car that won't turn over.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Hide Items When Login Is Not Working

Mar 13, 2012

In Snow Leaopard if I check the box against apps to Hide them whem logging in it worked fine... I login and the apps are running but not open (dot underneath). After upgrading to Lion this setting is ignored. Everytime I restart all the apps I chose to Hide open their windows and I have to manually click the red cross to hide them.  

For info, I have my computer do a scheduled restart every morning before I get to work. So I assume the checkbox to reopen windows when you login back in is checked as no one is there to uncheck it. BUT this should not be related, as the apps are marked to be hidden.

OS X :: Auto-shutdown At Login Window?

Oct 31, 2010

My parents share a Mac Mini. Often when I'm at their house, I notice that it's been left at the login screen. Presumably one person logged out thinking they were leaving the computer available for the other and then never put it to sleep at the login screen. The issue is that Energy Saver prefs don't seem to apply when there is no user logged in. The computer just sits there with the login window display indefinitely. It never goes to sleep or turns the display off.

Is there any way to have some sort of daemon run only while no one is logged in that would either shut down the computer or put it to sleep after a specified number of minutes of being idle at the login screen? While the Mac Mini is a very energy efficient computer, it still makes no sense for it to be on for dozens of hours each week unnecessarily.

OS X :: Finding An App For Auto Login With Password?

Mar 15, 2009

I just have a little question about starting my MacBook Pro, nothing too important, just trying to further streamline my OS X experience.

Currently, I am using the Schedule... feature in the Energy Saver portion of Sys Prefs (which is, oddly enough, represented by a energy hogging incandescent) to start my MBP each weekday, then sleep it three minutes later in case I decide not to use it. This is useful in that it cuts 30 seconds out of the startup/login process, but it only takes the process halfway (it doesn't log in). I could enable auto login to complete the process, but then my password would be rendered ineffective, and others who occasionally use my laptop would have instantaneous access to my account and files. Is there any way I can auto login then promptly lock the computer and head back to the login screen? Is there a scheduling application I could use to do the same?

Since installing Yosemite 10.10.1, every time I turn on my MacBook Pro I have to Select User and then login with my password. I don't want this, since I'm the only user and it wastes time. This didn't used to happen before installing Yosemite. I can't find the button in Security and Privacy that turns this off!

OS X :: User Account Not Visiable On Login Page - How To Fix It

Feb 4, 2010

I have 3 daughters sharing an eMac running 10.5.8 and one of my daughters accounts no longer is viewable from the login page that has my admin login and other daughters logins.

Under the finder>Macintosh HD>Users I see her folder.

Under Apple>Sys Prefs>Accounts I do NOT see her as an account.

If I try and create the account using the same name it tells me that a folder in the users folder has the same name and would I like to use that folder as the home folder for that account. I have chosen OK but the account is still not visable under SysPrefs or the login page.

I am sure there is a simple box to check some where but can't find it, does someone have a cure?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Disable Automatic App Switching?

Jun 1, 2012

This problem happens when I'm working between several applications at a time.  I'm actively working in the current app when OSX automatically pulls me out and shows me something in a background app that suddenly requires attention, like a dialog box.  Quite often I open or save files while working on something else, ususally in fullscreen mode.  Moments later, I'm disruptively switched to a file that just opened in another application, or I'm told that something was saved, updated, installed, etc.  This automatic switch interrupts my typing or commands in the app I was currently engaging, and has become a major problem. 

Is there a way to keep OSX from pulling me out of my current application?

Applications :: Safari Cannot Open Gmail Login Page

Jan 3, 2008

Anyone having problems accessing gmail in Safari today? When I try to access the sign-in page, it tells me that "Safari can't open the page [URL] because your computer isn't connected to the Internet." I am clearly connected to the internet. Also, my Mail.app cannot connect to my gmail account and neither can my GPeek widget.

However, I have no problem accessing gmail via Firefox. I have noticed this problem a few times over the past 2-3 weeks, but though it was a google issue. Today was the first time I thought of trying to access gmail via Firefox, and it does, which points to Safari. Of course, now that I've finished typing this up, I can access gmail via Safari with no problems.
